Study Detail

TitleThe whole genome sequence of a dinoflagellate, Symbiodinium minutum
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract We investigate first draft of a dinoflagellate nuclear genome to clarify alveolate genomic organization and evolution using next-generation sequencing technology (illumina and Roche454).
Description The ~1,500 megabase (Mb) nuclear genome of Symbiodinium minutum has a 616-Mb euchromatic region, comprising ~42,000 protein-coding genes.
